Poisoning by Cyanide of Potassium. An inquest has been held at the Red Cow, Chapel Street, Stratford, on Henry Giblett, aged two years and six months. The deceased accompanied some other persons into a photographic van in Bridge Road, Stratford, and as they were having their portraits taken he suddenly became alarmingly ill, and by the time Mr. Kennedy, the surgeon, arrived, had expired from the effects of a quantity of cyanide of potassium, which it is supposed he swallowed out of a phial which was in a cupboard. The jury found an open verdict, "That the child died from the effects of the poison, but how administered there was no evidence to show."
